Excitement and curiosity is mounting amongst fans as the winner of the high voltage reality show Bigg Boss 8 is to be announced tonight. While everyone is expecting Gautam Gulati to win, there are strong chances of Karishma Tanna also to bag the title. The sneak peek of tonight’s finale episode shows that Dabanng actress Sonakshi Sinha enters the house and declares that RJ Pritam is OUT! While Tanna, Ali, Dimpy and Gautam Gulati are seen holding hands, the video shows Pritam leaves their hand and is about to leave. Well, this is just the glimpse of the episode and we are sure that there must be a twist to the tale!

While speculations are being made that Gautam might win the current season of Bigg Boss, we wonder if history would repeat itself and one of the ladies might just be crowned as the winner. Bigg Boss 8 Grand Finale, happening on January 31, is one of the most anticipated events of the year on television. After surviving in the madhouse for four long months, Karishma Tanna, Gautam Gulati and Pritam Singh along with wild card entrants Ali Quli Mirza and Dimpy Mahajan finally entered the finale week battling politics and groupism in the house.

Coconut oil has been called the healthiest dietary oil on earth. If you're not using coconut oil for your daily cooking and body care needs, you're missing out on one of nature's most amazing health foods.

Coconut oil is nature's perfect food and there are an incredible number of benefits to using coconut oil in everyday life – from minor infections to serious diseases, coconut oil cures it all.

 After being demonized as an artery clogger for the last 60 years by the majority of health care officials and the mainstream media, coconut oil stayed out of the public consciousness until now. 

Multiple studies on Pacific Island populations (who get 30-60 percent of their total caloric intake from fully saturated coconut oil) have all shown nearly non-existent rates of cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, and obesity – issues we have come to accept as only being cured by pharmaceuticals.

 We now know that not all saturated fats are created equal. Coconut oil is composed primarily of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) that are burned almost immediately for energy production.

 Dr. Bruce Fife says in his book The Coconut Oil Miracle: “Eating foods containing MCFAs is like putting high octane fuel into your car. The car runs more smoothly and gets better gas mileage.” 

Studies have shown that coconut oil can successfully overpower viruses that cause influenza, herpes, measles, hepatitis C, AIDS – and more. It's also great fuel for your brain and has proven especially beneficial for Alzheimer's and dementia patients. There are a lot ways to use coconut oil and just a teaspoon or so a day could make significant differences in your health. 

5 Ways to Enjoy Coconut Oil

 1. In Cooking: 

Replace butter and other cooking oils with coconut oil. Unlike other oils, coconut oil won't produce free-radicals upon heating like other vegetable oils do.

 2. Face and Body Lotion:

 Coconut oil is without question the best natural skin lotion available. It absorbs quickly and won't leave your skin feeling greasy. A single jar of coconut oil can be used as a face lotion, body lotion, anti-wrinkle cream, eye-cream, stretch mark cream and massage lotion. And it smells amazing!

 3. Hair Care: 

Coconut oil makes a great hair mask. Simply melt a few teaspoons of coconut oil and apply to your hair. Let the natural oil soak in to your hair for a few hours before washing it out. It will leave your hair very shiny and smooth!

 4. In Smoothies or Juices:

 Coconut oil is the perfect addition to any smoothie. It adds a sweet and nutty taste and creates the most smooth and creamy texture. And the extra bonus is that the fat from the coconut oil actually helps your body better utilise the minerals and vitamins from the fruit juices.

 5. Sun Screen: 

Coconut oil has been used as an effective sunscreen for thousands of years by indigenous pacific islanders. Coconut oil applied on the skin protects against sunburn and cancer. Approximately 75% of commercial sunscreens contain toxic chemicals that are linked to cancer and disrupt hormones.

 The Benefits to Daily Consumption of Coconut Oil

1. Increased immune function

2. Reduces risk of cancer and other degenerative conditions

3. Alzheimer's treatment

4. Diabetes management

5. Heart disease prevention

6. Provides long lasting energy

7. Promotes weight loss

8. Great for skin and hair

9. Improved digestion 

10. Functions as a protective antioxidant.

When a Facebook message begins by addressing a "fatty", most would assume that what follows would be a few scathing comments. Instead, a user posted this message on Facebook that was absolutely inspiring (even though it had quite the negative beginning). 

When people are worse than you at what you do, don't judge them for it. Appreciate they are still trying. "Don't judge your beginning to someone else's middle." We are all different and in different places in our lives.

I want to feel free. 

I want to take that stupid corporate identity card strung around my neck, 

chuck it into the gutter and walk out of my damn office. 

I want to take a long sabbatical and not be judged for it.

I want to stop scrolling for a while.

I want to log out of Facebook and not give a damn that a website won’t remind me about the birthdays of my friends I don’t bother to remember anyway.

I want to delete my Twitter account and stop that nonsensical one-upmanship of jibes and jokes and rabble rousing.

I want to take my phone and shove it into a vat of hot chocolate and say “Screw you, you Candy Crush enabling piece of shit!”

And after that, I will eat every last piece of that chocolate and love every moment of it. 

I want to follow my dreams.

I want to do whatever the hell I want.

I’ll become a sail boat captain. I’ll go teach orphaned children. I’ll buy a pack of crayons and doodle on a big ass piece of chart paper.

I will go get a block of stone, a chisel and a hammer, carve out the shittiest sculpture the world has ever seen and make my friends clap for it.

Because it’ll make me feel happy.

I want to travel.

I want to go to the most secluded place I can find nearby and sit there for hours.

Once I’m there, I want to do nothing but let the wind caress my "ugly" face that all the commercials on T.V say should be "fair and pimple free and perfectly toned."

And away from all that consumerist bullshit, let nature tell me, “You silly bastard, you’re fine just the way you are. I made you this way.”

I want to go on an adventure every month.

I want to climb Mt. Everest. And then brag about it to the next douchebag that shoves an iPhone 56 into my face and see him try to top that.

I want to bungee jump from somewhere really high and dangerous and feel the adrenaline rush as I scream out all the air in my lungs. 

I want to scuba dive in the Andamans because I can’t afford to go the Great Barrier Reef.

And there, I’ll  high-five a fish. Because I fricking feel like it.

I want to get to know my family better.

I want to sit down with my Dad and ask him about what he did in College.

His biggest achievements and his biggest disappointments.

Hopefully, I’ll be counted in the former.

I want to thank my Mum and hug her. Every single day.

And ask her to kiss me on the cheek because I need her love.

Because nothing else in the world can make me feel as special or as wanted.

I want to live my life.

For the precise reason that it is mine to live.

You do not own it. You cannot claim it. And I will not let you dictate it.

I am going to fill it with love, travel and the search for myself.

And that is all that matters.

Danish writer Mikael Wulff and cartoon artist Anders Morgenthaler – the creative duo known as Wumo – has created a brilliant series of graphs that illustrate some of the basic painful truths of everyday life in the world.

 Their graphs and diagrams are snarky and sarcastic but, for the most part, true. This, coupled with their simple and official-looking design, makes them a delight to look at.

Which of their graphs and diagrams apply to you? Let us know in the comments section!
